Working alongside long-time friend and partner-in-crime Alex, the rebellious pair are not afraid to voice their thoughts. They explain, ‘We wrote this song about people getting distracted with material things and focusing on style over substance. We love pop music but so many artists we love don’t really say anything, so it’s partially addressing that as well, but at the same time it’s also really tongue-in-cheek and fun.”
It follows the previously released single ‘Get By’, which is about “marrying your rich granddad for his money and then throwing him down a canyon”. It was straight away added to Apple Music’s New Artist Spotlight and Best of the Week playlist as well as Spotify’s ‘Weekly Buzz’ playlist and has achieved various US TV syncs. It comes with an equally outrageous video which you can watch HERE.
Ella and Alex met at school and fled to London to begin their musical antics. They’ve since worked with the likes of Ant Whiting (M.I.A., John Newman), Lewis Gardiner (PRIDES, KLOE), Dimitri Tikovoi (Charli XCX, MNEK) and Shaun Canning (Atom Tree), and their first releases ‘Fractured Fairytales’, ‘The Crown’ and ‘Houdini’ racked up an abundance of support from the likes of Clash, DIY Magazine, Popjustice, Nylon, Wonderland, Spotify’s New Music Friday, Radio 1, BBC Introducing and more.
They recently dropped the one-off track ‘Theresea May (Bullshit)’ in the lead up to the general election, which Clash described as “spitefully hilarious and completely on-point”.
Drawing inspiration from socio-political issues, pop culture, astrophysics, Lil’ Kim and reruns of South Park, Cherryade are ready to break the popstar mould. They’ve played a number of shows this year including The Islington and The Finsbury in London.
